Streaming dataset not appearing in desktop as source

Hello All,

Need your help! I have crated a streaming dataset "Realtime2" in Power BI service but I want to use this streaming dataset in power bi desktop. When I use "Power Bi Service" thorugh 'Get Data' in desktop, I can only see the datasources which I have created in desktop itself and the new streaming database "Realtime2" which I have created in power bi services is not appearing here at all. I am using correct login credentials for both versions. Could anyone kindly advise where I am missing something?

 

I did logoff and login either but no success. 

 

Please advise, thanks!

You're right. Ensure that Historic data analysis is enabled.

@v-chuncz-msft, Thanks for response, I did accordingly but still not apearing in the list. Also my observation, when I make historical on my dataset become 'Hybrid' and my .net code is not really streaming the data but when its 'streaming' i.e. historical is off then it works fine in power bi service. I may be missing with my code somewhere but at the moment my main concern is why the API dataset is not coming in power bi desktop.

 

I appreciate your time and efforts in this matter. Please advise if anything strikes you and I'll try further. thanks!
